The New ERA Championship is the only championship in New ERA of Wrestling. The championship was decided in the Battle Bowl Mania Finals which was an over the top rope Battle Royal between the four men from the two remaining tag teams on the 04.05.04 edition of New ERA RAUCOUS from the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Current Champion

The First is the current New ERA Champion after defeating Fanatic at New ERA Cyberstrike on August 12, 2011. During the match, "Gentleman" Jonathan Marx stormed the ring and attempted to hit the First with a steel chair. However, he accidentally hit Fanatic instead causing the First to win the championship. On Cyberstrike 13, taped on August 25, 2011, it was revealed to be a ploy as Marx had joined the Shadow Cult.

Number One Contender

The Druid, Mr. Entertainment, Richard Dweck, and Suicide have banked shots at the New ERA Championship. The Druid's banked shots expire at the end of Season 3. Suicide has banked two shots at the championship due to his winning three matches in a row twice.
